Whose ride is it, anyway? The impact of shared mobility on public transit

Ottawa, July 23 2019 ? Public transit ridership levels vary across Canada, raising questions and debate about the impact of shared mobility services such as ride-hailing and car-sharing on transit systems. The Conference Board of Canada's My Ride, Your Ride, Our Ride report provides insight into the combined effect of shared, connected, autonomous, and electric vehicles on long-term public transit investments and operations. The report, released through the Board's Roundtable on Shared Mobility, also provides strategies for transit agencies to consider in this era of shared and new mobility innovation.

"Public transit needs to accommodate evolving societal preferences, and leverage operational and technology innovations, to remain vital in the era of shared and new mobility" says Dr. Babatunde Olateju, Senior Research Associate, The Conference Board of Canada. "The impact of shared mobility on transit is complex. It can be complementary, competitive, or neutral, depending on local factors".
